Cryptologic is a leader in good-looking, smooth-working gambling software. The selection of games, the graphics, sound effects during play, crowd noises, comp programs, and customer service are superb. They offer an unusually wide selection of games.

Highlights of their version 4.0 are new and enhanced single and multi-player games (Blackjack, Baccarat, and Roulette) including bonus rounds and progressive games, an interactive casino floor populated with 'real' players, table and seat selection, customizable player avatars, simpler registration and enhanced download capabilities, gaming and e-cash tutorials and advanced online purchasing capabilities.

Fast, attractive and user-configurable multi-media is the heart of the system. There is a side-bar that includes a "Who's Playing" list, a live-chat channel and a real-time news/stocks feed. Their E-Cash Services is famous for quick payouts, once you've completed all the necessary forms. We've never heard of anyone who has played at a Cryptologic casino and felt being cheated. They make a lot of information about their operation available, a sign that they are taking things serious.

Most Cryptologic casinos will offer you promotional bonuses like this:

Deposit Bonus: Make a deposit of $100 or more to get a $50 bonus. This offer is available once per month per player. To cash out this bonus, you must wager min. $1,500. Break the Bank: Guess a nine-digit combination to the bank vault to get $100,000. The game is available every day. You must have at least $10 on your deposit to play. Comp Program: The "Comp Club", depending upon the game you play, is awarding points for each dollar bet. At Video Poker, it's 1 point for each $10 of play, and a total of 100 points gets cash of $1 back. That equates to a 0.1% cash back. If you play Roulette, it's tripled, as are slots. Refer A Friend: For every friend you invite to the casino you get $25. But first your friend has to become a casino member and wager at least $50. Promotions: They have daily and monthly drawings as well. Win free cell phones, Super Bowl Tickets, free holidays across the globe, free trips, golf shirts, baseball caps etc.

Financial Info
Cryptologic casinos use E-Cash Services, Inc. as the third-party administrator for credit card purchases. This system has processed billions of USD of transactions since 1996 without a single instance of fraud. Most Cryptologic casinos accept Visa or Mastercard and credit- and debit cards with Visa or Master Card connection. Also accepted are Bank Check, Money Order, Wire Transfer, Ecash and Western Union. When withdrawing funds first they credit back to your credit card the amount you originally deposited. The rest of your money will be sent by check.

As part of their continuing commitment to safe and responsible gaming, the company has integrated new personal options and security features into version 4.0: Players can impose deposit and bet limits on themselves, place a temporary lock on their accounts and track their gaming activity and e-cash transactions online in real-time. All payouts are audited by a trustworthy auditing firm.

Cryptologic casinos run on Windows only and a download is required at just over 13 MB for the basic casino. You download a 'lite' version (3.5MB) first which offers Blackjack only, then other games may be added later with their easy to handle Upgrade-Assistant. A 'complete' casino is about 28 MB in size. Cryptologic casinos offers a "User Information System" backup that will save your settings on a floppy disk. This is a great idea, as you're covered in case of a disk crash or other disaster.
